The rapper drops the latest single from his forthcoming new album, out later this year.
Love can be intoxicating, an inescapable high which triggers bold levels of adrenaline and fearlessness. In the lives of many young people, prom night can be one of the most important moments--as a coming of age ritual which forever defines their high school career. "That's what I'm talking about. See, I didn't see no whole lot of girls but I'm still trying to figure you out," CrimsonMuzik, a 26-year-old, red-haired emcee shrouded in mystery, recounts on the opening lyric to his new track, the smoldering "Prom Night Limousine Stuff." With the assist from TJ Pompeo, who mixes pop and urban in his vocal, the latest entry documents the innocence and intrigue of prom night, in a propulsive and provocative way.
"'Prom Night Limousine Stuff' is a love song that was inspired by the feeling you get when you step out of the limo at prom. You feel important, like a celebrity, and that's the way she makes me feel," shares CrimsonMuzik to Popdust about the song, premiering exclusively today.
"This ain't no game of hide and seek, but girl, I found you. I've been looking. I know you've been looking, too," vibrates the refrain. "It's that prom night, boo shit, limousine stuff, yeah."
Coming off a string of viral-level Facebook clips, including his Damn Daniel remix (105,000 spins), and SoundCloud hits (DeadPool Cypher with more than half a million plays), CrimsonMuzik, born Lee Andes, is expecting to drop a new track every month this year. "Prom Night Limousine Stuff" follows the more recently release of "Vogue," which is "a track I wrote for my fiancé specifically, but in general, it's a song about showing the utmost appreciation for your lady. When I wrote it, I wanted to be sure that the lyrics would be uplifting and bolster any woman's confidence in themselves on the inside, but to also feel appreciated and sexy on the outside," he explained. "Everything about this record said 'this is a hit!' from the moment I heard the instrumental. The lyrics actually came very quick, and Kyrell Scott caught the vision on the hook before I even wrote the verses."
As a result from his hard work so far, CrimsonMuzik has opened for such acts as the Ying Yang Twins, Ces Cru and Sammy Adams and worked with everyone from JPaulSings (Lecrae) to JR of So Hot Productions.
Details surrounding the street date of CrimsonMuzik's new album are forthcoming.

Animation is lame and live-action is awesome.
Everybody loves Disney live-action remakes.
In a world plagued by racism, disease, and a seemingly endless bounty of spiraling misfortune, at least we can all agree that Disney knocks it out of the park every time they dredge up an old, animated movie for a live-action makeover because cartoons are for babies.
Sure, some of us thought the original Beauty and the Beast was fine, but could lame, 2D Belle ever hold a candle to 3D Emma Watson? And yeah, the original Lion King was okay, I guess, but there's nobody in the world who preferred cartoon Scar's rendition of "Be Prepared" to the incredible feat of getting a real lion to sing it in the live-action remake.
Being a Disney fan can be hard sometimes, as you have fond memories of beloved childhood movies but also don't want people to make fun of you for liking cartoons. That's why, out of all the corporations in the world, Disney is undoubtedly the most selfless, willing to spend hundreds of billions of dollars to bring their old, outdated movies into the modern age—all for the fans.
After Halle Berry walked back her consideration of playing a transgender character, we look back at how Hollywood has repeatedly fumbled trans representation.
Halle Berry has made headlines this week after turning down a role in which, had she gone through with production, would have represented a transgender man.
Berry, an Academy Award-winning actress known for roles in films like Monster's Ball, Catwoman, and Gothika, took to Twitter Monday night to apologize for considering the role. "Over the weekend I had the opportunity to discuss my consideration of an upcoming role as a transgender man, and I"d like to apologize for those remarks," Berry wrote. "As a cisgender woman, I now understand that I should not have considered this role, and that the transgender community should undeniably have the opportunity to tell their own stories."
The post continued: "I am grateful for the guidance and critical conversation over the past few days and I will continue to listen, educate and learn from this mistake. I vow to be an ally in using my voice to promote better representation on-screen, both in front of and behind the camera."
